These reusable hot packs are fantastic for any type of cold outdoor winter activity. They heat up to 55 degrees and last about 40-60 minutes. The small size is just perfect to throw in your pocket and warm up your hands at any time. It’s environmentally friendly and easy to use. To activate, simply snap the disc. To reuse, you just throw it in boiling water for 5 min or so. Some people think this is a bit inconvenient, however, you won’t be saying that once you have something warm in your pocket on a cold windy winter day. Bonus points for the festive design!

I like to take them with whenever hiking in cold temps and during any type of winter activity like snowshoeing, skating, and cross country skiing – I just place them in my pocket as a handy pocket warmer. They also work great for soothing sore muscles, especially on the neck or shoulders. This is also a great item to have on hand for any outdoor event like a festival, parade, etc where you will be outside in the cold air for hours on end.

5. Travel Banana Grams

This mini version of Banana Grams is perfect for on the go fun. For those new to the game, you basically make your own crossword puzzles using letter cubes. As a fairly challenging and time consuming game, it’s just perfect for wasting some time in the car and airport. Plus, all the tiny pieces are stored within the game, so you will not lose anything! Travel Scrabble is another must if you are willing to dish out an extra 5 bucks. This mini version of my favorite game includes a special tile lock design so you can start a game and pick it up later again with all the pieces still in the same place.
